Mark was born in Minneapolis, MN. Ever since he was 12 years old he wanted to be on the radio. He moved to Bellevue, WA in 1993 and graduated from Bellevue High School in 1996. Mark excelled in the radio program there on 89.3 KASB. He hosted his own show on Wednesday nights where his friends and family would have to park in the parking lot just to hear him! : ) When Mark was 18, he went Bellevue Community College and studied communications. Soon after, joined KJR-FM as an intern for Dave Yates' 7-Midnight show. Mark learned the ins and outs of business from the entire staff and loved what he saw! After a few months, Mark received a phone call from then Program Director and PM Drive host Norm Gregory. While on the phone Norm offered Mark the overnight shift Tuesday thru Friday, 12Mid to 6AM and 4AM to10AM on the weekends. (YIKES!) So, there went Mark's social life for a while, but he enjoyed every minute of it!
Mark is an avid golfer and loves to spend time with his wife and two sons.
